Hey everyone, I really need a crash course explaining about the best food for dogs. I've only had cats growing up and the past 5 years, I've gotten a lot smarter and educated myself about better food options for them. Unfortunately our cat passed away a month ago from cancer. I decided I wanted to try opening my heart up to another creature, a dog this time since I've never had one and my husband really wants one. We decided that we want to adopt a dog from the shelter. It will be a larger breed dog like a Labrador, Podenco, or shepherd mix. I know that for cats, it's best to get food without grains, starch, vegetables, and fruits because they can't digest it well. I was wondering if it's the same with dogs or if they need any of those in their diet. Also for cats, it's better to not feed especially males a lot of fish since it can lead to some problems like Urinary Tract Infections. Is there anything similar like that, that I need to be careful with in dogs? For Dry food, I was wondering which option would be the best. I see similar brands that I know are better for cats like Acana, Purizon, Taste of the Wild, and Applaws. I was feeding my cat Purizon which to me, looked like the second best option, the first being Orijen. I was surprised to see that Purizon was also available for dogs, but I'm not sure how well made it is for them. Which dog food brand is the best besides Orijen since unfortunately it is too pricey for me. The last thing I was curious about is how much if any wet food should a dog eat? Is it something they need to eat every day, occasionally, or not at all? I was honestly surprised to see that they do have wet dog food available since I didn't know that dogs ate wet food and I never heard of anyone that gives their dogs it. I would always feed our cat wet food in the morning and evening along with dry food. If wet food is good for dogs, I would appreciate some recommendations on the best one's. I see the same brands I use to feed my cat like Bozita, GranataPet, MAC's, and Animonda. I also see that they have a Taste of the Wild wet food. But I'm not sure how good those brands are for dogs. I would also appreciate recommendations on any others I didn't list. Thanks for taking time to read this long post and for the advice.
